Today is the 16th of the 7th Lunar Month. Many Buddhist will eat vegetarian and offer incense during the 15th of the Lunar Month. Businesses, however, make observances on the 16th instead, and the 7th month being more auspicious than most others.
They will make their offerings out on the street and sprinkle water and rice for good luck.
Here the shopowner is sprinkling rice on her relatives and helpers, who are busy picking up the offerings.
